Does Batch still consider himself committed to Texas Tech?
"I'd say as of now I'm committed," he said. "Those guys (at Texas Tech) are pretty cool.
"I had to make sure it was OK for me to visit other schools before I visited Northwestern. I'm not sure who else I'll visit, but I think I'll take the other three."
When asked who else he is thinking about, Batch said, "Miami, Tennessee, Florida State, and Auburn."
